St. Cloud VA Health Care System
Recovery Night at St. Cloud VA
December 19, 2019
Recovery Night is scheduled for Jan. 14, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Bldg. 8 (Auditorium), St. Cloud VA Medical Center, located at 4801 Veterans Drive, in St. Cloud.
Recovery Night features a resource fair as well as inspiring Veterans sharing their stories of victory, healing and hope.
Veterans, family members, VA staff and community members with an interest in mental health recovery and programs or who want to support someone in their recovery are invited to attend.
For Veterans, recovery is about staying in control of their life despite experiencing a mental health problem. It emphasizes that people with mental health concerns can gain or regain the capacity to live a meaningful and self-determined life and thrive in their communities.
In support of rehabilitation and recovery for Veterans with mental health concerns, the VA has identified recovery as a guiding principle for its entire mental health service delivery system. Recovery is a journey that involves developing hope, self-direction, empowerment, respect and peer support.
Recovery Night is sponsored by the St. Cloud VA Health Care System Veterans Mental Health Advocacy Council.
